Last seen in Vishal Bhardwaj’s Pataakha (2018), ace comedian Sunil Grover is planning a comeback show, according to reports. If reports are to be believed, Grover will reteam with Ali Asgar and Upasana Singh for his next offering.
Shedding more lights on the untitled show, a well-placed source reveals, “It will be based on the Jija-saali concept with Sunil playing the brother-in-law. In the North, a lot of importance is given to the Jija and everyone takes care to not upset him. The makers will be playing on that. In the show, he will have seven saalis and it will have the feel of a Badhaai Ho (2018) meeting Bareilly Ki Barfi (2017).”
Just like Sunil Grover’s previous show, The Kapil Sharma Show, his new show will also be used as a platform for film promotion. Many celebrities will be gracing the show to promote their forthcoming films.
Reportedly, the makers are in talks with a popular name to play host to the show. “Unlike in Kapil’s show where, as the host, he ridicules the other characters, the anchor here will also be playing a character. He will be one of the saalas. In fact, the saalis will be a mix of girls and men in drag with each having a peculiar characteristic,” the source goes on to add.
It is yet to be confirmed that which channel will broadcast the show.
